One of the most common injuries following a car crash is whiplash. Accident Advice Helpline can help you to get compensation for the injury, but what exactly is whiplash?
Whiplash is the name used to describe the pain and discomfort you can feel in your neck after a sudden impact such as a car crash. If your car is hit from behind, the impact can push your head forwards, and when it jerks back it can injure the tissues in your neck and cause a lot of pain. Not everyone who is involved in an accident will have whiplash, but if you are involved in a car crash and find that in the days immediately following you have stiffness, pain or tenderness in your neck, you are probably suffering from the injury.
There is no miracle cure for whiplash and some sufferers find that their pain can last for weeks or even months. Accident Advice Helpline are the industry experts in claiming compensation for clients who have been injured in car accidents which were not their fault and are suffering from whiplash. We operate on a no win no fee* basis, so there is no risk attached to getting what you are entitled to.
Medical experts agree that moving your neck rather than keeping it still in a neck brace is the best way to repair the damage caused by a whiplash injury, and painkillers can also help with the resulting discomfort. Stronger painkillers from your doctor may be better than those which can be bought over the counter. In some cases, it may even be recommended that you attend physiotherapy to help alleviate the symptoms.
The exact payout for your whiplash injury will depend on whether or not other injuries were sustained and how severely the whiplash is affecting you short and long-term. The easiest way in which to find out whether or not you are entitled to the average settlement for whiplash is to speak to the experts. Our professional and friendly team have many years of experience in taking clients through the process of getting their whiplash compensation.
